Toward Scalable, Automated Tower-Top Phased Array Calibration
Cooper, Tim and McCormack, Justine and Farrell, Ronan and Baldwin, Gerard (2007) Toward Scalable, Automated Tower-Top Phased Array Calibration. .
The tower-top deployment of base station electronics
could prove of utility in future cellular communication
applications. We present a scalable, non-radiative, automated
calibration scheme for such a system, which employs an array
of independently phased transceivers. By coupling an interlinear
row of reference transceivers to the array, feedpoint calibration of
the array is possible. The theoretical justication for the scheme is
presented together with assessment of the accuracy of calibration
possible using commercial off the shelf components.
